Presenting the Q3 reports which underline the importance and ongoing impact of our Max India Foundation (MIF) partnership programs.
Girls Blossom Bus
During the 2019-2020 academic year 300 rural girls from poor families of 23 villages in Mewat were able to achieve an average of 90% attendance due to the MIF supported Girl’s Blossom Bus service. We also take heart from key outcomes of the program such as significant increases and even doubling of girls attending high school grades from nine to eleven at schools served by GBB!
Education Quality Addition (EQU+)
Since being established in JJ colonies and resettlement colonies of Delhi, EQU+ centres have become an essential feature in many of the communities in which they are located, providing education and a safe and uplifting environment for the children, as well as support and a platform to address social issues for poor, working parents.
A total of twenty MIF evening education centres served around 500 children and their families throughout the period with classes running for two hours at evening time, six days a week. While classes focus on keeping children up with their schoolwork, importance is also given to storytelling, dance and drawing in order to uplift the children’s spirits and confidence and establish joy in learning.
